First circular: Call for abstracts

The Organizing and Scientific Committee of CEST2019, invites you to participate in the 16th International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology (CEST2019). The conference will be held in the island of Rhodes, Greece from 4 to 7 September 2019.

The conference is organized by the University of the Aegean (Greece) together with the South Aegean Region and is supported by the University of Salerno (Italy) and the Imperial College London (UK). The main organizer is the multi-disciplinary Global NEST (Network of Environmental Science and Technology); an international scientific movement that has been successfully developing for the last 29 years with members from more than 60 countries. Global NEST is an international scientific movement focusing on innovative environmental issues.

CEST biennial series has become one of the worldwide leading environmental event gathering experts, scientists, entrepreneurs as well as representatives of public administration and social initiatives presenting state-of-the-art research and addressing emerging environmental issues. The previous event, CEST2017, was the most successful event since the series was initially launched in 1989, with 460 participants from 75 countries originating from 6 continents (Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America and Australia). The programme included 415 oral and 253 poster presentations from 25 unique research areas. Participants also benefited from the interaction with 15 distinguished scientists that were invited and delivered keynote and plenary talks.

 

CEST2019, coincides with the celebration of the 30 years anniversary (1989-2019) of CEST series and we are aiming to make it a memorable event.

During CEST2019 you will have the opportunity to:

  • present and discuss your research with scientists from around the world
  • attend presentations covering all the latest trends and innovations in the field of environmental science and technology
  • meet with our prestigious invited speakers (to be announced)
  • expand your network
  • enjoy the island of Rhodes, one of the most famous Greek touristic attractions!

 

Conference language

The official language of CEST2019 is English.

CEST Proceedings and publication of papers

All the papers that are selected for either oral or poster presentation undergo a review process. As a result of the improving quality of the papers in previous conferences, their proceedings have been included in databases, such as Science Citation Index (ISI) and SRCosmos. Since 2015, the papers that are presented in CEST, are submitted to cooperating journals for review and publication in special issues.

The papers presented in CEST2019, will be submitted in the cooperating journals for inclusion in special issues after the normal peer review process of the journals. In most cases, the authors will be notified on the submission process after the acceptance of their paper (prior to the conference).
